When people hear about Twilight they think of the sparkling vampires, the werewolves, and let’s not forget about our all time favorite human: Bella Swan. The movies don’t do the book much justice, but, in reality, what movie does? The movie has the same plot points, and it was relatively accurate. Unfortunately, the movie producers did not focus on aspects of the book readers and viewers would have liked. They also never worked on the main flaws in the movie. The book and the movie are two distinct things, with the book being much better than the movie will ever be.

The movies were never able to capture the characters correctly, though they did get some things right in the plot. For example, Edward Cullen, the handsome, sparkling vampire. In the books, Edward is much more sarcastic and even bipolar to an extent. Edward battles his feelings for Bella throughout most of the book. You can clearly see Bella is his soulmate, but the fact that it took more than half the book for Edward to act on those feelings is what makes it worthwhile. Another example would be Bella Swan. Bella comes out as a teenager who doesn’t like anyone, she is forced to move from sunny Phoenix, Arizona to always raining Forks, Washington. Bella didn’t come to Forks to make friends, nor did she intend to fall in love with sparkling vampire, Edward Cullen. Although their romance was shown more towards the ending, I feel like there was no rush unlike most romance depictions in books and movies. They didn’t just meet and BOOM fall in love. No. Bella and Edward took things slow, and that is probably my favorite thing about the book. Stephanie Meyer only included a few scenes with Jacob Black, but I have to admit he is one of my favorite characters. Meyer wrote Jacob as an innocent 16 year old boy with a major crush on Bella; this is my favorite trait in him. 

Stephanie Meyer only wrote three more books following Twilight: New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn. I am currently on the second book in the series, and I am still in love with Jacob Black. For those who have seen the movies you know all the details that happen in New Moon. Just imagine the scenes between Bella and Jacob. Personally I’m an Edward fan, but, hey, I can still give some of my appreciation to an amazing character like Jacob. I would recommend this book to those who are actually willing to give the series a shot because I personally love the books so far.
